NORFOLK (CBS) – A young boy is recovering in the hospital after being struck by a car Wednesday morning in Norfolk.

The crash took place near a school bus stop on Strawberry Lane near Grove Street around 8:30 a.m., injuring a 26-month-old boy.Impact from the collision sent the boy flying into the nearby treeline.

Police did not know the extent of the child’s injuries, but said the toddler was conscious and alert while being transported from the scene.

“Fortunately, we can say that the child was quite verbal on location, which is always a good indicator,” Fire Chief Cole Bushnell said.

He was taken by MedFlight to Tufts Medical Center in Boston, where he is reportedly “OK” and has no broken bones.

A family friend said he got a frantic text from the boy’s mother after he was hit.

“She has other children, so I think she’d walked them down to the bus stop to drop them off for school, and then this unfortunate thing happened,” said John Stellberger.

Witnesses said the toddler was walking to the bus stop with his mother and older brother when he “darted” into the road and was hit by a passing BMW.

“Everybody was at the bus stop, and this little boy just took off and ran into the street and got hit,” said neighbor Janet Nason. “Everybody was screaming, basically, screaming, crying,”Both of the boy’s parents were at the scene as he was transported to the hospital.

The driver of the BMW stopped and was cooperating with police, and was visibly shaken. She is a 44-year-old woman who lives in the neighborhood.

No charges have been filed, though the incident remains under investigation.

After school, Norfolk Police helped parents get their children off the bus, recovering after the traumatic morning.
